For some performance numbers, when running Ubuntu 8.10 the performance of the ASUS Eee Top ET1602 was compared to two other touch-based computers. The other two were an Elo Touchsystems 1529L and Elo Touchsystems 17A2. The Elo 1529L uses a VIA Nehemiah CPU clocked at 1.00GHz with a VIA motherboard, 512MB of RAM, 30GB FUJITSU MHT2030AT IDE HDD, and S3 86C380 Savage integrated graphics. The Elo 17A2 packs an Intel Celeron M running at 1.00GHz, an Intel 915GM motherboard with ICH6M Chipset, 512MB of DDR memory, 40GB FUJITSU MHY2040BH HDD, and Intel 915 Express Graphics. Recapping the ET1602 specifications, it has a 1.60GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, ASUSTeK QTCEDA85103234 motherboard with Intel 945GME + ICH7M Chipset, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB ST9160310AS HDD, and Intel 945 Express Graphics. All three systems were running Ubuntu 8.10 with the Linux 2.6.27 kernel, GNOME 2.24.1, X Server 1.5.2, Mesa 7.2, GCC 4.3.2, and were formatted to use the EXT3 file-system.

We benchmarked the Elo 1529L, Elo 17A2, and ASUS Eee Top ET1602 using the Phoronix Test Suite. The tests facilitated using the Phoronix Test Suite were Ogg encoding, LAME MP3 encoding, FFmpeg, OpenSSL, BYTE Unix Benchmark, and SQLite.
